My husband, 18 month old son and I stayed at the Pride Motel last night. We were looking for someplace reasonably priced and comfortable while visiting Portland for a friend's birthday. We were completely charmed by our accommodations in this small motel, which is conveniently located on Rt. 1 in Scarborough. The owners were very sweet and welcoming. Our son was smitten with their skittish bichon frise, Alex Trebek. He also enjoyed playing on the sturdy jungle gym, running around the expansive lawn, and checking out the hens in the cool chicken coop in the back of the property. We'd like to thank Dave, the property manager, for volunteering to show us the baby chicks! They were adorable! There is also a really lovely greenhouse on the property and it is obvious that someone has 2 really green thumbs. Our room was comfortable, clean and had plenty of room for our son's pack n' play. We didn't notice any traffic noise from rt. 1 and got a good night's sleep. We have already discussed returning to stay at one of the Pride's cute cottages for a long weekend this summer. The owners told us that they are opening the pool Memorial Day Weekend. I think this is the perfect spot to vacation affordably near Portland and the beaches. There are so many family-friendly activities near by and it is a nice place to spend some time.
